Our History

Shalom College has been preparing students for adult life since 1984. The College was established after the closure of the Christian Brothers College for boys and Loyola College for girls. Although much has changed in the last thirty years, our basic educational principles have not. Our school exists to make a difference.

Every student should receive quality education in a caring environment. The tradition of Catholic schooling in Australia lives on at Shalom where Christian principles form an integral part of all aspects of school life.

Our main campus is set among thirteen hectares of bushland on the outskirts of West Bundaberg. The school boasts modern facilities to provide for a comprehensive, general curriculum suitable for all abilities and interests. Excellence is valued and encouraged. While academically gifted students are challenged to reach their full potential, all ability levels are provided with appropriate courses, support and attention.

Shalom College also has a campus of eighty-five hectares at South Bingera twenty-three kilometres west of Bundaberg. This campus provides our students with outdoor activities, environmental education and a venue for camps and retreats. All students are given the opportunity to use its facilities.
